Difficulty formatting field date Grid

Hello,
I'm having trouble formatting date field, even using the formats: format="yMd" or format = "M/d/y hh: mm"
nothing works and when I try to put it in the format:
  this.formatoptions = {type: 'dateTime', format: 'M / d / y hh: mm a'}
the data grid is not loaded.

When put to edit and saved the format of the field changes but not being specified.
a sample project modified from the demo follows:

Hi Adriano,  

Thanks for contacting Syncfusion Support.  

We can reproduce the reported problem at our end. The cause of the problem is datasource bound to the Grid contains the data column with the string values. Grid only formats the values from date object and not from the string. So, we suggest parse the dataSource before binding the Grid using ‘DataUtil.parse.parseJson’ method which is imported from the @syncfusion/ej2-base module. Refer to the following demo.
